These pillowy, moist, sweet & sticky cookies are everything you could ever want out of a fall filled cookie! They’re just the right amount of cookie & cake mixed into one delectable little pumpkin treat! This cookie is perfect for an on the go snack on the way to the pumpkin patch, to pile into a goodie bag to give to loved ones for a small Halloween gift, or a perfect dessert next to the fireplace after a cozy candle light dinner. However, whenever, or wherever you want to enjoy these.. it will be just the perfect fit because these delicate delights are always going to be DEVINE!
For everyone who knows me personally knows that I am more towards the culinary side of the spectrum rather than the pastry side, but there are still many things that I adore creating, inventing, and experimenting with, and these cookies are the definition of that! These pumpkin marshmallow cake cookies are the epitome of easy! Easy, easy, easy as the cookie world comes Diamonds! Sometimes when we hear “easy” when it comes to baking we kind of question ourselves if what we’re making is going to fit up to our standards of what we are imagining and wanting it to taste like. Fortunately.. just like in the culinary world.. when the word easy comes into play it mostly just means simple and fast.. not for every recipe, but for most! Some of the most simplest things in life are the most beautiful, and these babies are seriously so beautiful! Beautiful to look at and beautiful to devour!
The first two steps when baking anything is to combined the wet & dry ingredients: The wet ingredients is what you always want to first begin with!
- For the wet ingredients I combined 1 large egg, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree, 1tsp of vanilla extract, and 1 stick of melted butter together. The butter doesn’t have to be fully melted.. just make sure that it is really really softened!
- For the dry ingredients I combined 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of baking powder, and 1 tsp of salt together in with the wet ingredients, and mixed everything together with a hand mixer!
The art of cake cookie creating:
Combine all of the cookie ingredients together on medium speed with the mixer. Add 1/2 cup of mini marshmallows for that gooey bite of pure sugary sweetness that we’re going to long for when indulging in these cookies! You want to make sure the cookie batter isn’t too thin, but also not too thick. Then take a spoonful of the mouthwatering pumpkin batter, and place them into a circular shape on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake these pumpkin marshmallow cake cookies at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes depending on the type of oven you have, and how soft & chewy you would like them!
- This recipe makes 20-25 cookies depending on how big, or small you would like to make them!
These cookies are going to be a hit at your house this fall for parties, get togethers, autumn birthdays, and game days! You really can’t go wrong with cookies as a treat especially being pumpkin flavored in this fall season that we just arrived in! Everyone adores pumpkin spice everything when this season comes back for it’s return, so there isn’t going to be a better way to start of the spookiest month of the year! Since this is a cake cookie, you’re more than welcome to add icing onto these little pillows of joy, but the marshmallows inside of them gives it that creamy burst of sweetness just the same as any icing would! If you’re not too into overly sweet things I would for sure skip out on the icing, but if that’s right up your alley you can absolutely go for it! I thought these were phenomenal just as is, with a pumpkin spice latte to sip on while spending some self care time curled up on the couch in front of the first Hocus Pocus premier of the 50 that I will be having before the seasons over! 😉
